Hello everyone it is soooo good to be back on line we literally just got back our phone service within the last 15 minutes. Power was down for a week and no water for 4 days. We were in much better shape then a lot of people with a generator and plenty of gas and food but my friends it has been a scary stressful time as of today a lot of people still are without power a lot of houses including mine suffered roof damage and it rained yesterday causing more damage to the houses that had not been able to put up temporary covers. My little family is well Carl started back to school yesterday and Elisa is happy she can go outside and play Ok the embarrassing part during the storm a metal shutter came loose from a huge second story window and started banging against it. If it would have broken it would have been catastrophic since it was facing the way the storm was coming from I went out in the storm got up on a latter and secured the thing but on the way down a huge gust of wind picked me and the latter up and slammed me to the concrete walkway knocking me unconscious and shattering my left arm in 5 places. The hospitals are so packed right now they have put it in a splint until they can operate on it next Thursday to put my elbow back together. I’m so happy that my family came through unscathed and we will all laugh at this one day. Thanks everyone especially Harry B for letting everyone know that I was all right please forgive me for not responding to each individual response it is hard to type with just one hand but I will start to post more after I get my arm fixed and I took a few one handed pictures of the storm damage I will post later. Its so good to see everyone again I missed you all.
